Once again, Harpoon Brewery will be providing refreshing beer on the beach after the big splash, and Tasty Burger will be serving up delicious burgers. Registration is open and fundraising has begun—so get signed up now to support your local beach and start working your way towards some great prizes!

“We’re really lucky to have great beaches, and great partners like Harpoon Brewery and JetBlue, who share our commitment to our community and our love for these beaches” said Bruce Berman, Save the Harbor’s Director of Strategy, Communications, and Programs.

This year there are SIX ways to win a round trip ticket on JetBlue! The top 2 overall fundraisers each win a ticket (must raise a minimum of $1,000), the best costume for male and female each win a ticket, everyone who makes a contribution (registration, donation or pledge) is entered in a raffle to win a ticket, everyone who raises at least $1,000 will be entered into the Elite Raffle to win a ticket, and those who raise $100 or more have a chance to win t-shirts, Red Sox tickets, a hotel stay, and Harpoon hoodies. Check out the Cupid Splash website for more details!  

"We are excited to support our friends at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay.  We have been brewing on Boston’s waterfront for more than 25 years, and we believe in their mission,” said Charlie Storey, Senior VP of the Harpoon Brewery, whose philanthropic program, Harpoon Helps, is co-producing this year's Splash in South Boston. "The Cupid Splash is a great way to spend one of the first Saturdays of Spring; a quick dip into the icy water to get the blood flowing, followed by a cold Harpoon with your friends - all to support a great cause!"

Last year about 200 splashers raised over $30,000 to support free events and programs on the public beaches from Nahant to Nantasket. This year we are hoping to make an even bigger splash to provide the funds for increased public programming on our beaches, organized by friends groups and other great local organizations.

To register online for the Cupid Splash, visit Registration is easy and provides each participant with an individualized page to set a fundraising goal and track progress, as well as a link to send to friends and family to encourage them to donate!  There is even an option to register as a “chicken” and raise money without actually plunging into the harbor.  

Funds raised go to support free events and programs on the public beaches in Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy, and Hull.
